Shopping the Stash for the Week

I am headed way off course this week, as we added a bit to our collection and want to play with those new things immediately.

Not shown, for Miss Butterfly’s birthday, I got her something she really wanted. I wasn’t planning on it, but when I saw the Too Faced chocolate gold palette deeply on sale on Ulta’s site, rendering it the exact amount I’d intended to spend on her birthday gift, I couldn’t help myself. I purchased it.

And then, I also picked up the natural face palette, which I have had my eye on for a long time, reading up on all the fantastic reviews and wishing I could purchase it. Deeply on sale is totally my price point. And just to get a little nutty, I also picked up the Sweet Peach palette. Now, I know Miss Butterfly will let me play with her chocolate gold at some point, in fact she’s not even keeping it in her collection, it’s displayed with my collection. But, I also don’t want to dip into that before she’s had a fair opportunity. When she tells me I can, that’s when I’ll do so.

Which means this week for me is Sweet Peach week.

I’ll get back to my project pan next week, hitting it hard then. But for now, I get to play. Here’s what I’ll be concentrating on this week:
Clinique setting powder (part of project pan.)
Urban Decay all nighter foundation (Part of project pan)
Mac paint pot in soft ochre for an eyeshadow primer
The sweet peach palette (Can I just say the scent of this one is awful?!)

From left to right on the palette mirror:
YSL Mon Paris Sample which is so close to being gone that I also added
Hermes Eau des Merveilles Bleue sample
Flower Beauty Petal Pout in a lovely coral shade, matching the palette nicely
Maybelline nude (part of project pan)
Bare Minerals Bareskin concealer
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara (My current favorite favorite.)
Nyx eyebrow powder pencil (So easy to use and Taupe is a great shade for me!)
Style Sepia eyeliner (part of project pan)
JonteBlu eyeliner in charcoal
Buxum lipgloss (part of project pan)
I just noticed that the primer I put in here isn’t what I meant to put in, I meant to pick up my mac primer, sorry about that.
Too Faced Natural face palette (I want to try using this as eyeshadow too, might be mighty convenient for travel simplicity to be able to just take that palette for everything. And I’ve got a trip coming up soonish.)

All that was super fun to plan out, between trying new products and having had a number of no makeup days while on vacation at home!

  1. I LOVE the Sweet Peach Palette! It is absolutely gorgeous and totally up my ally! I hope you love it as much as I do! I’d love to see a review on it by you! XO! 🙂

    • Oh, great idea! I’ve never done a review before. I’ve worn it 3 times now, and am quickly realizing it’s just not about the peachy colors at all. All the looks I am creating aren’t with the peach colors, and are almost magical in how good they look with so little effort on my part.
